don't think we're -- i don't think we're getting the full truth but i think, like dan was saying, it's almost like a therapy session. as dan knows with tyler when he was writing the book, you don't get the truth the first time you talk to someone. unfortunately for lance, he chose to do this big the way he chooses to do everything. and he's doing it right in front of us. >> it's so interesting. i've been taking a lot of notes on this. he says he never threat end others. he wasn't the kingpin. the idea that he wasn't driving the ship on this just seems, on its face, just false. >> it's patently ridiculous. he absolutely was. he made all the decisions from the equipment to everything else so that includes the doping regimen. >> he called the shots on this? >> tyler hamilton gets a phone call. be on a plane tomorrow. we're going to valencia to do a blood transfusion. that's what happened. >> i want to tell you what he said about his personal operations. >> they said you and the u.s. postal service, cycling team, pulled off the most, his words, sophisticated, professionalized and success
